Allscripts Announces Open App Challenge Award Recipients









CHICAGO and NEW ORLEANS, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An application that generates tasks and notes automatically from patient calls and a secure social network that enables patients to interact with physicians were among 15 award recipients of the Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Open App Challenge, announced today at HIMSS13 in New Orleans. More than 200 developers answered the call to "Start a Revolution" by creating innovative stand alone applications that can integrate with Allscripts Open Electronic Health Records (EHR) software.

The 15 award recipients include:

eDoc4u: Empowers chronically ill patients to better manage their health by providing personalized, automated follow-up programs.

ePREOP: Provides a preoperative screening tool that used to prevent delays, cancellations and unnecessary testing to improve postoperative outcomes and increase patient satisfaction.

Galen: eCalcs brings traditional health calculators, such as the Framingham Risk Score, to the point of care.

Genelex: Helps providers check for drug and gene interactions not covered by e-prescribing or EHR software interaction checks. Enables providers to check a patient's drug regimen and prevent adverse drug events.

Mana Health: This Diagnostic Decision Support engine collects patient data and suggests testing needs and diagnoses. Encodes massive amounts of diagnoses and helps inform diagnosis faster.

Medefile: Provides an electronic personal health record and offers the service of collecting, digitizing, indexing and storing all of the patient's data.

Moxe Health: Generates tasks and notes automatically from patient calls, removing one of the greatest barriers to quality care – provider documentation.

PATHway: This mobile solution addresses risk factors for diabetes patients and enables providers to monitor progress and engage at-risk patients.

Sense.ly: This virtual nurse is equipped with a set of remote tools that enable the assessment of a patient's condition and suggest follow-up actions. 

Shareable Ink: Using a digital pen, providers can document directly into the EHR, as if typed in directly. Patients can also use it to fill out medical history or consent forms.

Smart Sign Out: Improves the way doctors communicate about patients and the efficiency and accuracy of handoffs through technology that can be accessed on any device.

Spaulding Clinical: Supports high risk cardiac patients care and empowers providers to enhance patient engagement through remote tools.

Treat'em: Private, secure social network that enables patients to interact with providers and to benefit from the support and wisdom of fellow users, while keeping their medical data confidential.

VAL9000: Hands-free, hassle-free audio access to medical records from a providers' phone. Simply speak to enter notes, update charts and ask for patient data.

Windward: This mobile solution addresses risk factors for lung disease patients and enables providers to monitor progress and engage patients at risk.

"Our Open App Challenge award recipients, and all of the participants, are well on the way to improving healthcare," said Paul M. Black, president and chief executive officer, Allscripts. "By combining Allscripts open architecture with their innovative problem-solving ideas, these participants are making Open a reality."

Judges for Phase 1 included:

  • Dr. Mark Blatt, worldwide medical director, Intel
  • Dr. Lennox Hoyte, MSEECS, chief medical information officer, University of South Florida Physicians Group
  • Dr. Daniel Kraft, executive director, FutureMed
  • Timathie Leslie, vice president, Booz Allen Hamilton
  • Dr. James R. Morrow, founder, Morrow Family Medicine
  • Bill Spooner, chief information officer, Sharp HealthCare
  • Dr. Jeffrey L. Sunshine, vice president and chief medical information officer, University Hospitals

"As a practicing physician and CMIO, I appreciate the importance of EHRs built on open architecture," said Dr. Hoyte. "By enabling its EHRs to connect to outside systems and encouraging developers to create the apps to do so, Allscripts is working to transform health care for the better."
